Electronic Sign Guidelines

Please read these guidelines and then scroll down to complete the form below

The electronic sign, located in the northwest quadrant of the Old Highway 12-Old Crystal Bay Road North intersection, is under the auspices of the district’s Communications Office.

As an important communication tool, and one that is in high demand, there are guidelines that govern its use. Currently, City of Orono ordinances permit only one message per day. These guidelines assist in establishing the scheduling priority of all requests received.
Message requests fall into three categories. The categories are listed in priority order. The types of messages within each category are also listed in priority order.

Message requests fall into three categories…

Category I

  1. Emergency school information
  2. Recognition for significant achievements by students and staff
  3. Major school and Community Education events, i.e. open houses, conferences, concerts
  4. Major cocurricular events, i.e. state tournament participation, homecoming, Winterfest

Category II
